Kaiju is the floor-shaking, speaker-knocking new album from Canibus, one of hip-hop's greatest lyricists who continues to push himself as an artist. It also serves as his first solo release since 2015's excellent Time Flys, Life Dies... Phoenix Rise, which was produced entirely by Bronze Nazareth. It's only fitting, then, that 'Bus would once again work with only one producer for this project, which finds him spitting mind-melting bars over beats from Oxnard, CA beatsmith/rapper Body Bag Ben. The 12 tracks on Kaiju-two of which are bonus cuts-strike a balance between personal experiences and striking grandiosity that 'Bus expertly crafts with his pen. They also all boast the rewind-worthy lyrics you'd want from one of the genre's most creative and truly timeless talents. You can hear this immediately on the opening track, "Curmudgeon," where he spits raw bars with his signature growl over BBB's monstrous production. That vibe carries on throughout the record, from the snarling, DMX-assisted "Entameta (Remix)" through to the hip-hop epic of "Verzuz. " Kaiju is available now digitally and on CD, with a vinyl release in the works that's set to drop this summer through Body Bag Ben's imprint in partnership with Fat Beats.
